Default Landing 52F NW Regional

Is the runway at 52F NW Regional smooth enough for a RV6A to land?

No. Only RV-8s, 7s, 12s, 14s, and 10s can handle it. Sorry.

Should've asked if it were smooth enough to land twice.

Talking Stop at T67

I have a spare vehicle and you can maintain your crosswind currency.

Oh, what a relief. 7As aren't on your list. I just thought it was my crappy flare technique.

All joking aside, YES, it's smooth enough for any RV model, whether a nose-dragger or tail-dragger. Now that doesn't mean the runway is smooth...it sucks. But a good flare does keep your wheel boots from rattling excessively.
